First Communion | Zoe Donovan | Boston

Occasionally, in addition to weddings, I document other life milestones.  Here are a few images of Zoe's first communion at Sacred Heart Church in Roslindale.  It was a beautiful day, and particularly momentous because I photographed her parent's wedding nearly 9 years ago. donovan-20

Excited in the the aisle seats, the children dressed in white, wait for their name to be called.
